Highly rated F1 driver, who moved to Mercedes in 2017, after four seasons with Williams. His second year was outstanding, finishing 4th in the series, after a difficult debut season in 2013, and as such, Bottas was retained for 2016. Valtteri won two titles in 2008, including the Formula Renault Eurocup, but his stock really rose after winning the 2011 GP3 series. Bottas remains at Mercedes in 2019.
